ONE conference in Torino



Is it actually possible to exchange experiences on ICT investments among European regions? Can ICT Observatories in Europe play an active role in regional policies strategic planning? What are the new elements of the 2014-2020 European Cohesion Policy? The Consortium brought together relevant experts and practitioners to discuss these questions during a Conference that took place in Turin, Italy in May.

In order to show the benefit of an Observatory to regional decision makers and other stakeholders, the Conference has pointed out the fact that a well-functioning ICT Observatory in a region has a major positive impact on the provision of eServices there, because it is able to provide all necessary background information when there is a need to predict the main local socio-economic challenges. This includes a variety of indicators on issues such as population aging, needs of the young, development of SMEs etc. Having detailed knowledge about such socio-economic factors allows for more accurate policy making, providing citizens with access to better eServices and supporting dialog between citizens and their political representation.

ONE Project partners and objectives were presented to the media in a short dedicated session at 1 p.m. You can download the press release below.
